Following their 4-0 win against Latvia back in April, Team Canada presented by Sobeys is now set to play in the 2022 Billie Jean King Cup by BNP Paribas Finals. The Finals will take place on the indoor hard courts of the Emirates Arena in Glasgow, Scotland, from November 8 to 13, 2022.
It will be the fourth time Great Britain hosts the championship stage of the largest international team competition in women’s sport. Established in 1963 as the Federation Cup, the event first took place at London’s Queen’s Cub, with Billie Jean King herself a member of the winning USA team. The competition would go on to be held in Eastbourne in 1977 and Nottingham in 1991.
Team Canada will join Australia, Belgium, Czech Republic, Great Britain, Italy, Kazakhstan, Poland, Spain, Slovakia, Switzerland, and the USA in the Finals to compete for a chance at winning the world title. The official draw will be announced in the coming weeks.
